[MLS AWARDS] The finalists have been named for 2013 MLS awards, including Mike Magee and Robbie Keane, who began the season as teammates at the LA Galaxy, and Italian Marco Di Vaio of the Montreal Impact, the three finalists for Volkswagen Most Valuable Player. For all the awards:

The finalists earned the most votes in polling of three voting groups: current MLS players,  MLS clubs (coaches, technical directors, chief business officers and PR/community relations) and media members who covered MLS regularly in 2013.

The first winners will be announced on Monday.
 
This season’s most outstanding individual plays will be honored on Dec. 5 when the AT&T Goal of the Year and the Save of the Year are announced. Voting for the Goal and Save of the Year is conducted at MLSsoccer.com.
